How long does a BRB P/S set last in gallons? I think the typical ABC P/S set lasts about 6-8 gallons of fuel.

I have never seen a ABC P/S set last that length of time. Most we ever got from them was 2-3 gallons.

The BRB P/S sets will last a lot longer though. I believe Ed has a set with 7 gallons through it and still got plenty of compression.

Thanks Edward. I thought I'd add something to his comments. Pit-Racer finished 5th in the 40min. A-main, but he ran with teeth missing from his side belt and a broken front right cvd. And here's the kicker, his 2nd spur stripped so he ran over half the race with only 1st gear!! The track had a fairly long straight so his engine temp was affected with all the high rpm running he had to do. He came off the track around 300F and the engine is fine and didn't even blow the plug. That was quite a torture test and it passed with flying colors.

Congrats guys... I'm not surprised what the BRB can do in the hands of good drivers. It made it possible for normal drivers like me to make it to the A main for the first time.

3RD Gen. BRB did what others could not do! Thanks Team Palmaris! Also a correction .... I was driving V1RRR also for the 1st time. I knew from past testing that the engine could take the heat.

Hi Tony.
24 is number within batch. 2 nds generation was produced in September and October. 3rd generation in December and January. So if you got your set in that period of time, this is what it is. It is realy dificult to mesure the difference-there is no phisical size were changed tramendously, mostly is ports radiuse of cut-when we cut porst mill doesnt go striaght-it goes by arc ( which is changing flow direction)-this is biggest difrference.

I have over a gallon with my set and I still need to take a screw driver to the flywheel cause it gets stuck at TDC.

I have a brb set that is the first or second gen that has over 3 gallon of 30% ran through it and it still has good compression and gets stuck at TDC.
But someone correct me here if I'm wrong, I don't think you really want a tight seal at TDC, your really more after a good seal just above the exhaust port?
When we lap some of our P/S in, this is where we try to get the tightest or best seal at. Seems to work very well!
